A real Volkswagen Typ 1 "Beetle"

The VW Beetle began life in 1938, when Dr Ferdinand Porsche designed the Typ 1 KdF-Wagen for the German population. It was intended to be such a huge revolution in engineering, that it had its own town, Stadt des KdF-Wagens (now Wolfsburg), named after it. Unfortunately, the dawn of World War II led to the KdF-Wagen's factory to be used to produce the military Typ 82 Kübelwagen and Typ 166 Schwimmwagen. However after WWII, the Typ 1 resumed production under the new name - Volkswagen. Following the war, the 'Volkswagen Beetle' as fans called it (due to its visual similarities to a beetle) became an international pheonomenon, quickly becoming one of the world's most popular cars of all time, and inspired the iconic Porsche 356. In 1967, it recieved a facelift, but fell in popularity, due to its aging design. In 1978, mainstream production of the Beetle ceased in Germany, but small factories in Brazil and Mexico carried on producing Beetles until 2003, when production of the Typ 1 ceased entirely. In 1997, Volkswagen Germany decided to revive the Beetle, creating the VW New Beetle. It was larger and more spacious than its predecessor, in order to keep up with modern rivals. In 2001, the VW New Beetle RSi was introduced as the performance model, while the VW New Beetle Dune concept car was unveiled in 2000, as a possible off-road model, but was never put into production. In 2011, the New Beetle recieved a facelift and is still on sale today.
